Hillary Clinton has accepted the Democratic party’s presidential nomination Thursday night in Philadelphia, making history as the first woman to be chosen to run for the highest office in the land by a major party in the United States.

“Today, we’ve reached a milestone in our nation’s march toward a more perfect union: The first time that a major party has nominated a woman for President,” Clinton said. “Standing here as my mother’s daughter’s, and my daughter’s mother, I’m so happy this day has come.”

“Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men, too, because when any barrier falls in America, for anyone, it clears the way for everyone,” she continued. “When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit.”

Clinton was clearly emotional as she walked on stage, and said: “I’m so happy this day has come.”

    Big deal! She is campaigning for the presidency. It was to be expected that she would accept the nomination.
    America needs a good shake-up and drastic change. Let us give Donald Trump the opportunity to do so.
    Hilary Clinton will not do so. The same old charade; no change; even worst.

      Victoria Woodhull was the first woman in US History to be selected by a major party to represent it for the Presidency in 1872. A historical marker celebrating the fact along with her contributions for the Suffrage Movement and equal rights can be found in Ohio in Licking County. Many “major” parties existed over time that no longer exist such as the Whig Party that had a number of Presidents.

      This is just another “spin” the media uses in its promotion and glee of Hillary when it just is another lie by the DNC and Media trolls.

    America is facing dark days regardless of which candidate wins the white house.

    Neither Trump nor Clinton know God nor have the spiritual wherewithal to lead the nation.

    Do the majority of American voters know how to evaluate a candidate for the presidency? What are they looking for? No person who spurns the laws of God and violates His Word is going to have God on his or her side if the nation finds itself in the worst of times.

    Here we have a woman who approves abortion and homosexuality. She is being investigated for an alleged security breach involving the misuse of computers and e-mails. Her husband left the oval office in the midst of major moral scandals.

    If Hillary is voted into the White House she will be the president not her husband. But make no mistake about this. Behind closed doors Bill will be having in-put into the affairs of the nation. That is just how life is.

    Christians who find themselves on praying ground should pray for the future of America.

    • “America is facing dark days regardless of which candidate wins the white house.”

      Mr. Hill, the only dark days America will face is if Americans make the mistake and give the White House to Donald Trump, and his wife we saw in photographs completely nude!

      Contrary, Hilary has a lot more knowledge regarding the management, and running of a nation, primarily the United States of America. Every evil you hear about Hilary is designed to destroy her politically, the press, and some lying bigots must have a victim to prey on.

      Remember, some people tried to ruin Bill Clinton (her husband) life, even to going on a wild goose chase and impeached him: he prevailed, he did a very good job, and after eight years, left the White House, leaving the economy of the country in tact.

      The nation had a surplus of money. For whatever reason there are a few people, without a cause who hate Hilary, but she will prevail. Trump, Mr. Hill is not in Hilary’s class spiritually, nor…

    • Mr. Hill there is nothing to pray for; God created America for a purpose, one of which it has already served during the six, or seventh day Golan Heights war between Israel and Egypt, Israel won, and could have erased Egypt from the face of the earth.

      Sadat quickly signed a peace treaty shortly thereafter, for that Sadat was assassinated, do not ever underestimate America, the future of America is bright, worry about it if the Republicans take the White House in November, if the do America is going to war, Trump will ruin America.

      The man is a begot, he hate Blacks, and all other minorities, he hates white people with disabilities; the man is a crook: Have you ever heard about Trump University, research it and find out the true nature of that man. If four Gambling Casinos operated by Trump went bankrupt, what will he do to America.

      I wish I had the space to give you more details about that guy, but anyway seek and you will learn more!

      I am a Canadian citizen and cannot vote in America. This does not mean I don’t have an opinion and a right to express it. Whoever becomes America’s next president will have an effect on Canada and much of the world. At this time many Canadians are interested in America’s choice for a president.

      Because I would not vote for Mrs. Clinton does NOT mean I approve of Mr. Trump because I do NOT. There are definitely big problems with this man. But Americans who think they MUST vote have to decide for one or the other.

      God knows the end from the beginning. He has a reason and a purpose for what He allows. I must rest there. Jesus is coming for His people. Are you ready? I take comfort in knowing “… unto them that look for him shall he appear … ” (Hebrews 9:28)

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

      • Well, I agree you are next door and probably have an insight of what is going on here so it is okay you to be opinionated. Besides Americans considers Canada as just another State of the United States.

        Don’t be angry because I know most Canadians hate to hear that, nevertheless, I find the life style, and everything in Canada to be similar to everything in America, with slight variables, in that Elizabeth head is found on your currency.

        I do not mind you speaking your peace, but those talking heads; Dominicans should shut up because they have that Mountain Chicken Carpaud (crapo) Mentality Sly Eye Sir Knight Indian doctor of nothing, liar, Roosevelt Skerrit trampling all over them keeping the country in a state of poverty, and despair.

        They suffer night and day in Skerrit mess, and are unable to do anything about him. If you are unable to deal withe a little mouse, that little rat Skerrit, in Dominica why should they focus on a giant like Hilary?

        All that mouse can do…

      • All that mouse Roosevelt Skerrit can do is chew at the feet of China, and Venezuela and beg for handouts and sell Dominica passports to the world crooks criminals and thieves:

        There are more foreign thieves, and murderers out there walking around with Dominica passports than the seventy thousand born Dominican.

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

        Don’t worry Mr. Hill, if Hilary wins the elections, you country will remain as sound, however; if that mentality, and psychologically ill “crump” wins, he might attempt to annex Canada, and make it a State within the United States. Hence you might have to pick up arms against Trump to fight to keep you country!

        Hilary is not the threat Mr. Hill, Donald Trump is the threat, he is the one you should worry about!

    As I previously stated, I would prefer voting for Trump. Reason: If elected, I am curious/can’t wait to see what he could do for America. Hilary, on the other hand, I would never vote for. Her husband did a terrible act while in the White House. All of you who are of age and reason know what it is and all about it. It was scandalous. Why would Americans put them back in the White House? Oh please! This woman should not be trusted. Leave Hilary out of the American votes. I hope she does not win the presidency.
    God bless America! God help America!

    • You are a …. fool. I am sure you do not live in America, and do not have a clue of what is going on here, and if you live here you are such an idiot you are to blind to see the true corrupted and evil mentality of Donald Trump!

      Some of you Dominicans need to mind your damn business, deal with Skerrit who control and dominates the mind of idiots like you. Leave America business, and concern to people like me who are American citizens, and have the power to vote here.

      You are on the outside looking blowing fart from your mouth, shut up; and watch how it unfolds, have nothing to say, if you have no …. say in what Skerrit do to you and Dominica, why are you dipping into something that does not concern you?

      Mind you business, you idiot!

    I dont trust this woman!

    This woman will do and say anything just to get into the White House. She changes her stance on issues more often than i change my underwear. The mass media are on her side.
    She openly and shamelessly lies to your face and tries to have you crucified once she’s exposed.

    She is not to be trusted.

    Trump is the lesser of the 2 evils.

      Trump is just evil period!! A divisive bully clown; who has a cartoon vision of governing a country. If you cannot unite people you are not fit to be a lead.

      She breaks the glass ceiling.

    • July 30, 2016

      A person who does not obey the laws of God Almighty cannot be trusted to obey the laws of her country, and will not give the country godly governance if she becomes the national leader.

      One only needs to take note of her position when it comes to Christian morals and values to know where she would like to take the nation. Nobody who does not honor Biblical marriage and the traditional family unit is fit to rule a nation.

      They pretend to be for all evangelical Christians are for when they are campaigning in the Bible Belt. But then listen to their two faced campaign speeches in other places as they say they want marriage equality for all and fair and equal treatment for the LGBT community.

      When it is expedient they will speak of the sanctity of life. But when addressing another kind of audience they will uphold what they call “a woman’s reproductive rights” and the importance of “choice”.

      • July 30, 2016

        Marriage is not two men together or two women together. Marriage is one man and one woman together in a covenant relationship “until death do part.” No human government has the authority to redefine marriage. It is not theirs to redefine. It is an institution created by God.
        Please read Genesis 2:21-25 and Matthew 19:4-6.

        No person who does not uphold these Divine laws is fit to rule a nation. The people of God will have to tolerate such rule for a time. But soon Jesus will come and every knee will bow to Him, and every tongue will confess that He is Lord! His blood bought saints will share with Him in that glorious one thousand year reign of holiness and peace over the nations.

        EVEN SO, COME, LORD JESUS :!: (Revelation 22:20)

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

      I must say that I agree with you 100%. But this also is predicted in scripture, and not many people know it. \”A woman shall lead you.\” It\’s a curse on a country, a nation and the world when women are made to be the head. God didn\’t ordain it this way. Search the scriptures carefully and you\’ll see bible prophecy at work. World war III has begun and very few people know it.

      Yes, Billary Clinton is a snake in the grass, even when it’s dried. While I don’t try and argue which slave master is best suited for the continued oppression of the poor, Killary Klinton is the worst thing that could happen to the citizens of earth! Don’t take her for granted, look beyond the smoke and mirrors.

      Hey brother, she’s been in the white house. Second time around.

    • All I can say to all of you Dominicans who are running off your mouth, is simply this: Shut up, have nothing to say. You Dominicans allow Skerrit to railroad you all, spit in your bloody faces,and you still can’t do anything about him; how on earth some of you wish to stay in Dominica and dictate what should happen in America.

      Just because you all watch American Television in Dominica, does not mean you are residing here, your knowledge of America, and what is taking place here is only limited to the crap you see on television, the drama you see shall be your memory: Deal with Skerrit, and leave the business of America to Americans.

      In America, under normal circumstance people don’t walk around talking about Hilary, and Trump!

      We wait for election day, and do what we are suppose to do of our free will, no bribes anyone to vote, they do not pass out free money and food here, so if some of you who are running your mouth off believe there is something free for you in this;…
